I' m dealing with some fairly serious health issues, which make it impossible to blog until I get better. So blogging will be nonexistent until June or it may not be if I recover quickly.
A sugary excerpt to say au revoir from Cornell West on Barack Obama:
When you mobilise the legacy of Martin [Luther] King and put a bust of Martin King in the Oval Office, people elevate their hopes. Martin King is not just every brother (...) It’s like a novelist being obsessed with Tolstoy or Proust and then he ends up writing short stories that can barely get into some middlebrow magazine. Hey, you got our hopes up man! I was expecting Proust or Tolstoy, instead it would barely get in Newsweek.
I agree with West! Saying it obliges me to come back quickly for it bugs me that they are a part of what might be my last blog before a while.
